Our #econready contest has concluded! We asked K-12 teachers to show us how they will be incorporating economics and personal finance into their classrooms this year, and to let us know which EconEdLink resource (lesson plan, video, or activity) complimented their work. We were thoroughly impressed by all the contest entrants!

We’d also like to thank Kevin Morgan, who has been on a roll sharing his economics and personal finance teaching on social media:
